Maybe try a recommendation from a physiotherapist or exersise therapist/occupational therapist? They might have a better idea about a good trainer, rather than your standard walk-in gym. (In my personal experience, I had an initial first trainer who was fabulous....then the gym switched me over to one of the standard trainers and he was a dud.)

Obese women are not a special case, every personal trainer who is any good can train you just fine.

However, personal trainers in general are very hit and miss, many are great and many are a total waste of money.

If you want a personal trainer try to find one that comes with a recommendation or several references.
